    Study Title:

    A Phase 2 Study of the Combination Dostarlimab with Niraparib In Patients with Penile Carcinoma Who Have Progressed Following Chemotherapy


    The purpose of the study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of the combination of niraparib and dostarlimab in patients participants with advanced relapsed/refractory penile cancer.


    Primary Objective: The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy, as measured by confirmed ORR per iRECIST based on Investigator assessment, of the combination of niraparib and dostarlimab in patients with advanced penile cancer after receiving chemotherapy. Secondary Objectives: To evaluate the efficacy of dostarlimab in combination with niraparib by assessing: - overall survival (OS) - progression-free survival (PFS), using iRECIST. To evaluate the efficacy of dostarlimab in combination with niraparib by assessing the following per RECIST v.1.1: - overall response rate (ORR) - disease control rate (DCR) To evaluate the safety and tolerability of the niraparib and dostarlimab combination in patients with PSCC as measured by standard safety assessments. Tertiary/Exploratory Objective: To evaluate molecular, viral and immune markers for pathways associated with response.

  • Inclusion Criteria

    • Provide written, informed consent to participate in the study and follow the study procedures
    • Histologically confirmed stage III (unresectable) or stage IV penile cancer, as per American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) staging system.
    • Life expectancy >12 weeks
    • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status of 0, or 1 (ECOG performance status 2 can be included after discussion with PI)
    • Measurable disease per iRECIST
    • Participants who have progressed or had tolerance problems to no more than one prior line of therapy in the locally advanced setting or post platinum-based chemotherapy, including in a neoadjuvant or adjuvant setting or in combination with radiation therapy.
    • Participants must not have received any prior immune-oncology regimens, including but not limited to checkpoint inhibitors such as anti-PD-1, anti-PD-L1, anti-PD-L2, anti-CD137, or anti-CTLA-4 antibody, or any other antibody or drug specifically targeting T cell co-stimulation or checkpoint pathways, indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase pathway inhibitors, cancer vaccines, adoptive cell therapies, or other cytokine therapies
    • Demonstrated adequate organ function, as defined in protocol, within 28 days of treatment initiation
    • Clinically significant toxic effect(s) of the most recent prior chemotherapy must be Grade 1 or resolved (except alopecia and sensory neuropathy that may be Grade 2).
    • If the participant received major surgery or radiation therapy of > 30 Gy, they must have recovered from the toxicity and/or complications from the intervention.
    • Participants and their female partners of childbearing potential must agree and commit to use a highly effective form of contraception (e.g., condom with spermicidal foam/gel/film/cream/suppository) throughout the duration of the study until 6 months (female participants) and 3 months (male participants and their female partners), respectively, following the last dose of study drug. Female partner may use either an intrauterine device or hormonal contraception and continue until 3 months following the last dose of study drug. This criterion may be waived for male patients who have had a vasectomy 90 days months before signing the informed consent form (ICF) or a penectomy.
    • Participants must not have known active brain metastases.
    • Participants with treated brain metastases are eligible if they have neurologically returned to baseline (except for residual signs or symptoms related to the cns treatment) for at least 4 weeks prior to the first dose of study drug(s).
    • Participant cannot be receiving any chronic systemic steroids (prednisone or equivalent) > 20 mg daily, for at least 4 weeks prior to the first dose of study drug(s).
    • Participants with small, untreated, asymptomatic central nervous system (CNS) metastases without associated edema, shift, or requirement for steroids are eligible after discussion with the Medical Monitor, i.e. the Principal Investigator.
    • No stereotactic radiation or craniotomy within 4 weeks of Cycle 1 Day 1
    • No new central nervous system lesions on repeat radiographic imaging 4 weeks or more from last treatment
    • No clinically significant symptoms secondary to brain metastases
    • Participants must also consent to allow acquisition of existing formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) material (archival tumor tissue), either a block or unstained slides for planned correlative studies.
  • Exclusion Criteria

    • Use of an investigational agent or an investigational device within 4 weeks or within a time interval less than at least 5 half-lives of the investigational agent, whichever is shorter, before administration of first dose of study drug.
    • Active, known or suspected autoimmune disease requiring systemic treatment within the past 2 months or a documented history of clinically severe autoimmune disease that requires systemic steroids or immunosuppressive agents. (Exceptions include any patient on 10 mg or less of prednisone or equivalent, patients with vitiligo, hypothyroidism stable on hormone replacement, Type I diabetes, Graves' disease, Hashimoto's disease, alopecia areata, eczema, or with PI approval.)
    • History of allergy or hypersensitivity to study drug components
    • History of organ transplant that requires use of immune suppressive agents
    • Current active pneumonitis within 90 days of planned start of the study or a known history of interstitial lung disease, drug-related pneumonitis, or radiation pneumonitis requiring steroid treatment.
    • Prior surgery or radiotherapy encompassing >20% of the bone marrow within 14 days of therapy. Patients must have recovered from all radiation-related toxicities.
    • Active infection requiring systemic therapy; a known history of active tuberculosis.
    • Has known active hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection (e.g., hepatitis B surface antigen [HBsAg] reactive) or hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection (e.g., HCV ribonucleic acid [RNA] qualitative is detected)
